basically revealed yes, we're executing u.s. citizens without a trial and due process. did we mention that one of them was a 16-year-old boy? >> well initial reports describe him as a 20 something militant with al-qaeda, he was 16 years old and there is no public evidence he was a member of the al-qaeda network in yemen. >> you're not going to be surprised to find i'm a little outraged on that. >> there was a shooting in 2005 in at a coma washington, the man shot five times in a wheelchair company now. we're going to talk to him about it. if you think you know what he's going to say, you don't. tune in for that. it's going to be a real interesting conversation. >> every time, it's here we go again. >> it stirs up old feelings. >> i'm annoyed. people are embracing evil, and i've never understood that. >> the story of a woman who was raped in our military and the incredible lack of justice she received. her husband's going to be on the show to talk about it, too a powerful show. it's go time. >> cenk: we start with a story that's got my blood boiling the drone program. the white house c
the ridiculous drone strikes on u.s. citizens without a trial. president obama, as soon as the law allowed. i would close gitmo, send everyone in there to a maximum security prison in colorado where we have nickels who was part of oklahoma city bombing where we have the union in uni bomber and the original world trade center bombing terrorist. i think we are strong enough, and we will do it, and i challenge you to defy me. speaking of defying him, one final thing. we have a consumer financial protection bureau. the republicans say we're going to block him. we won't let you get him confirmed. if i was president obama i'd say hey listen. that's easy enough. underneath richard cordray i'm going to nominate neil bar ox vs confident y. he was inspector general for tarp, and he's got no love lost for these banks that are doing out of control risk with our money. you want to get rid of court ray, that problem. you want to get rid of barovsky? i'll put in dennis kucinich. that's how you do a strong state of the union. president obama will enter tonight, shake a lot of hands my guess is his speech wil
to that and then we'll come back and talk about it. >> i just want to note on this, there are district attorneys and u.s. attorneys who are out there every day squeezing ordinary citizens on sometimes very thin grounds, and taking them to trial in order to make an example, as they put it. i'm really concerned that too big to fail has become too big for trial. that just seems wrong to me. cenk: so david look, if we said this in washington d.c., that power establishment doesn't hold itself accountable under any circumstances but will crush the average guy, you'd get laughed out of the room, saying oh oh, come on, that's so conspirator yell, you're case dawg. is elizabeth warren right there's two standards depending whether you're rich and powerful. >> she's exactly right. we can see that on the hsby bank in which the u.s. government let off this huge bank doing business with criminals, drug cartels and terrorists, and the justice department, the obama justice department essentially let that bank off the hook without a single prosecution of an executive, without prosecuting the company as a whole settling
because you can't be all together that happy with u.s. policies towards palestinian considering the wall that you're against etc. and here you are in the united states you may get an oscar. i would be excited. how do you reconcile these two things. >> yes i'm very excited. my son is very excited to come to the united states, and to come to be in this historic day. what happens to me in the los angeles airport reminds me where i live and where i come from because i get this in my country from israeli army, israeli occupation every day. we are under many pressures in our homes. so you know, i know this treatment. it's like a reminder, this reminds me of what happens to me in my home. >> cenk: so tell me why the movie is called "five broken cameras" and what you were covering? >> "five broken cameras" is a film about my experience, my point of view, it's about me. my story the peaceful existence in the village about my friends and the daily life in the village. it's a long period of shooting, about seven years. i was following the events of the village and following my life, my family growi
of our u.s. senators have been urging obama to sign the permit. they don't care about what it's going to do to the climate. later, we'll talk about the financial aspects of this. michael hastierings, you ever more on this story. it's a little ridiculous. >> it's a 1700-mile pipeline. it's been delayed a number of times now but the governor of nebraska has just signed off on it, and now the fate of it rests in president obama's hands and people in nebraska are not happy about it. there's already been protests trying to stop it. >> from native american drums to grassroots speaking out gems the oil pipeline, taking they are fight to the state capitol. >> everybody takes it for granted, water. we can't take it for granted. if a drop of oil gets in there there goes our water. >> transcanada wants to build it to the gulf of mexico, passing through nebraska. a state evaluation finds the new route still passes over the action i didn't fer but avoids the sand hills, one of the reasons why the governor approved the project. >> we're always concerned about a spill but they made assurances in tha
snipers in u.s. history. he once shot a target more than a mile away. he was a highly decorated navy seal, seven medals of bravery. >> michael hastings joins us with this segment as well. when you read in kyle's history you read that he had five tours in iraq. there are reports that he killed as many as 160 people. what are your thoughts on this story? >> i think it's very much laudatory that he was trying to help a 25-year-old veteran with ptsd. kyle had great success with his book. he became somewhat of a celebrity in the military community, and he was trying to use that in a positive way bringing a kid out to a shooting range. i know people might think that's odd, why would you take someone with ptsd to a range and around gunfire. there were people who would go back in the war zone to relive the experience but instead have a positive result at the end of it. there are different things that people are trying to do to combat those things and it sound like that's what they were trying to do in this case. >> did you know chris kyle at all? >> no, i reached out to him when i did a story on
that they will allow the congress to look at the decisions they're making before they execute u.s. citizens without a trial. now. >>> on to mixed news, and we've got an interesting case. the old interior secretary was ken salazar, not a big fan. i felt that he favored industry far too much. the new one is sally jewel, who has just been appointed by president obama, of course, pending confirmation. this is a very important position because it controls and maintains thousands of acres gas production, coal production all come from those lands. it's a very important industry situation and public land and resources as well. she's the first woman appointed by obama in his second term to his cabinet. who is she? well, she is an engineer for mobile oil corporation. she was the parole yum egg engineer at raini er bank, and head of commercial banking at washington mutual. she was in banking for 20 years. and she was vice chairman of national park conservation, which is good news, and ceo at rei, which is pretty environmental at this conscious. this is pretty good as well. they said this energy background cou
is not getting any health benefits from the u.s. military. outrageous. then we'll go inside the fiscal cliff to tell what you happened. >> he said i'm giving you $100 billion in tax revenue what do i get for it? the president said nothing. >> all right new front line documentary on that great new information. and then dorner, the man they're doing the manhunt for here in los angeles. >> i'm going to look in these allegations again. we're going to reopen the investigation and take a look at what--at all the facets of that investigation. >> i know it's a good story but i'm glad to see "magnum p.i." coming over from hawai'i to do that investigation. >> i believe everyone in america believes this moment when we got bin-laden. >> obama: tonight i can report to the people of america and to the world that our operations killed owe sam bin. sow sam bin-laden. no americans were killed. they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. >> cenk: we know who the shooter s and we know he has left the military after 16 years of service, and we also know he will not be getting any benefits in terms
republic where we have a president and a congress who seem to think it's ok to add u.s. citizens to assassination lists, and take not only them out, but their 16-year-old sons who are also u.s. citizens, if they think that it's ok that we send drones over, you know, president obama ther night in the state of the union got this great applause for saying we're finally bringing our troops back home. he didn't say anything about the fact that we're continuing the drone war program, the killings of thousands of people, many of the vast majority of them innocent civilians men women and children creating so much more hatred toward the united states. cenk: i think you're absolutely right about that. we talk about it on "the young turks" all the time. the problem is in my experience, people don't actually take to the streets unless it concerns them. when you talk about the drone program, it rates anywhere between 83% to 55% depending on how you ask the question, but it's very popular. why? because they're not the ones getting droned. in vietnam there were huge protester because people wer
of houston ranks 10th of u.s. stiffs in crime, the 10th high effort crime city in the country behind detroit, baltimore memphis philadelphia. we move then to see he what the breakdown of the crime is in houston, and we see things that are frightening. 10,719 violent crimes, 105 murders, 332 rapes. over 4,000 robberies. firearms were used in two thirds of the reported murders in 2011 in houston. it makes you think ok, well, firefirearms are used in two thirds of those murders maybe it would be a good idea to take the firearms off the street. kyle copeland is a graduate student at the university of houston in houston texas and has an idea. we're going to let the abc affiliate tell us about it. >> to protect themselves and their homes web offers up free shotguns like this. it's all through the non-profit called the armed citizens profit. the free shotguns will be purchased with donations to his non-profit and given to law abiding single women and people who feel vulnerable in crime-ridden areas. they will pinpoint neighborhoods eligible for the shotgun give away with police statistics. the chie
are willing to admit to. i believe there are many mother. you say 16,000. that's what the u.s. bishops are willing to admit to, but other scholars say that the numbers are more like 100,000. so i think this are many more victims. in terms of whether we should be hopeful for the church, my position is that i believe we have to be hopeful because so much is at risk. i mean, what's at risk is the safety of children. we know we can't undo what happened if a child's innocence is shattered but we can prevent the shattering from happening. that's what i hope church officials will do under the new regime, with the new pope. >> michael: i'm curious, barbara, before we let you go, where there is smoke there is also a new pope, there is also fire. with these allegations that i shouldn't say allegations, but rumors where benedict is stepping down? >> look, i don't think we're ever going to really ever be able to verify what the pope step down. i don't know if speculation is all that helpful. i do believe what is important to recognize is that he's stepping down, and it's important to recognize tha
